What's happening on April 25th you ask? With all this injury funk I have been going through I figured I needed something to get me excited and a goal to focus on. So, I pulled out my calendar yesterday and I picked a date that I am going to try out the good ol' knees and run.
Here is the plan:
-I will go out slowly and be OK with that.
-I will go for 1 mile and at that point I will assess how I am feeling and go from there. I would love to do 3... but realistically, I know that I might not be able to and I am going to be OK with that
-No matter what- I will enjoy it and I will be happy about it.
-If I need more recovery time I will just go with it.
Anyways... wish me luck! I feel like I should make a paper chain count down and put gold stars all over it or something!
This weekend was a great one. I got so excited and involved that there are no pictures to document it. I did however "bake" a few things. I tried out a new no-bake cookie recipe found here. BTW- side note... that blog is a friend of mine back in UT who is pretty much amazing and you should all go to her blog and tell her how awesome she is. :) Back to the cookies... they were so yummy! Check out my friend's blog for pictures... like I said.. no pictures. Sad face.
The other thing I made and I DO have pictures of... are the famous protein bars by Jess (who is also fantastic).
Recipe found here. I did change two things... first- I only had chocolate protein powder and no vanilla.. 2nd thing: I didn't have any honey- only Agave. So I substituted that and they come out fantastic. Chocolatey-peanut buttery-goodness! So.Delicious.
Today's planned workout:
-An hour on the elliptical
-upper body weights
-and of course... a date with the foam roller.
I may sit on the bike for a while and read. I am reading "I Am Number Four" by Pittacus Lore. It is addicting! I am pacing myself through the book though so I don't finish it too fast. It is KILLING me! Haha...
